        Documentation 

        The functionality of the Ribbon is as follows:

        • A short tap of the touch sensor will cycle through 7 brightness levels
        • A long hold of the touch sensor will cycle through retro pixel effects
        • A long hold of start + select will enter function mode; holding start + select again will exit function mode.
          Be aware, although you may be unable to see the lit words "game boy logo" beneath your lens, the function mode still works as follows...
        • While in function mode:
          • Tapping the touch sensor will cycle through different words in the GBC logo
          • With "game" selected, start and select will move the display up and down
          • With "boy" selected, start and select will move the display left and right
          • With "color" selected, start and select will cycle through color options for the GBC logo

          Notes

          • This product has no Game Boy Color illuminated logo.
          • Some soldering is required, install as shown here
          • We recommend using this LCD with Funny Playing's GBC shells, as they are designed to make installation of this kit as easy as possible; while this kit can be installed on other shells, some shell modification is required to accommodate the pre-adhered lens

            Warning

            • We strongly recommend testing the display before installing it in your console. Please follow our Display Testing Guide to confirm the kit is working before the adhesive is secured, the display protection sheet removed, or any non-critical soldering to the ribbon or driver PCB. We are unable to accept returns or replacements on kits that have been installed in a console. Individual replacement parts may be available in the "Included" section above.
            • The ribbon is very fragile, be sure to handle it carefully to avoid damage.
            • Too much pressure can permanently damage the display, do not force the shell closed around the LCD. Ensure the shell is properly trimmed for the display before attempting to install it.

            Easy and Worth It

            This mod is super easy to install and looks phenomenal. The screen is massive relative to the original GBC screen and the backlight looks superb.

            Great screen!

            I love the crisp bright display, scanines, and pixel effects. The larger screen is definitely a must have upgraded for any GBC
